Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A tutorial with review questions for Linux system administrators who want their server to share files with Windows clients rather than installing a Windows NT server, for Windows NT system administrators who want to diversify their network with Linux to share the load, and for corporate UNIX system administrators who need to share resources to Windows clients. Gillard, an Australian UNIX and Windows NT consultant, explains installing and configuring the software, solving problems with network setups, sharing files and printers, and using Samba with all current Windows versions. The disk contains the latest source and binaries of Samba and several administrative tools. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
